Every year millions of Americans suffer from chronic non-healing wounds. The best course of treatment for a patient depends on wound type.

Wound Types

  • Diabetic Neuropathic Ulcer – develop from loss of sensation in the feet, typically under weight bearing areas that may begin as a callous or corn
  • Arterial Ulcer – develop due to poor circulation in the feet, typically on the tips of the toes and lower legs, and can be very painful
  • Venous Ulcer – develop due to compromised veins causing blood to flow only one way that can lead to excessive swelling in the legs, typically found on the ankle
  • Decubitus Pressure Ulcer – develop from prolonged periods of bed rest due to chronic illness or extended hospital stays
  • Non-Healing Post-Operative Wounds – although a rare postoperative complication, postoperative infections may develop causing wound dehiscence
  • Chronic Osteomyelitis – bone infection typically caused by bacteria
  • Burn Wounds – type of injury to the skin typically caused by heat from hot liquids, solids or fire
